IMPORTANT FACTS
RICHARDSON" Boilers are rated
according to accurate standards
and upon the assumption that sufficient
radiation will be used, the piping system
properly arranged and the boiler connected
to a flue of ample capacity and good draft.
With steam at 2 lbs. boiler pressure and with
hot water at a temperature of 180° Fahrenheit.
Our ratings provide. that all piping (mains,
risers and returns), in addition to the direct
radiation to be used, shall be figured as
radiating surface in estimating the size of
boiler necessary. One size larger boiler for
reserve power is best used.
For indirect radiation add 75 per cent, to
surface for such radiation, and where pipe
radiation surface is used, add 25 per cent, for
same to equal the usual amount direct
radiation.
When a pipe coil or cast-iron section is
placed in the fircpot for heating water for
domestic uses, additional capacity must be
figured at the rate of 1^ square feet of direct
radiation for a steam boiler and 2^ square
feet of direct radiation for a hot-water boiler,
for each gallon of water to be heated per hour.
"RICHARDSON" Boilers are tapped for
coils to be placed in the firebox for heating
water. Front section of side feed boilers
should not be so used.
Do not bush outlets on boilers; connect
all of them full size to the mains.
To secure best results boilers should be
covered with Asbestos cement.
GUARANTEE
Every "RICHARDSON" Boiler is sold
under a guarantee as to its perfection in
manufacture, and its ability to carry the
rating shown in our printed matter, provided
that a sufficient amount of radiation is in-
stalled, the piping system properly run, and
the boiler connected to a flue of sufficient
size and draft for the size of the fire box.
COAL
"RICHARDSON" Boilers can be furnished
with grates to burn the small sizes of coal
when so ordered.
When soft coal is used for fuel, increase
boiler one size.
''RICHARDSON"
Round Sectional Steam and Water
Boilers
OICHARDSON" Round Boilers were designed to
*^ furnish a boiler adapted for small buildings and
private residences, one that would be simple and
easy to operate, powerful, yet economical. How
well these results have been attained is shown by
the many thousands in actual use. Their opera-
tion is most simple, and requires no practical knowl-
edge. They have large feed doors for supplying fuel
to the fire, and ample cleanout and ash-pit doors,
and will carry sufficient fire all night to insure a
warm house in early mornings.

RICHARDSON
Round Sectional Steam and Water
Boilers
A LL house owners are anxious to install a boiler
^^ that will generate the most heat with the least
expense for fuel and with as little attention as
possible. This is accomplished with the ''RICH-
ARDSON" Boilers. The deep fire chamber with
corrugated sides will carry fire and generate heat a
long time without attention. Over the fire is a large
amount of active heating surface, properly propor-
tioned for the rating of the boiler. This surface
being backed by water, the full heat from the fire
is utilized and the water quickly raised to a high
temperature.

Method for establishing Ratings
When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a
residence for 70 degrees, the heat-condensing power of the radiation and
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 (>i) lbs. of steam per sq. ft. per hour.
The capacity of the Richardson Boilers as indicated in the following table
is figured on this basis.
If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such
as occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the factor
representing the increased condensation, should be used.
To convert line E to B.t.u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat
energy is expressed in terms of B.t.u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150
for water.
If A is burned in 8 hours, divide E by 8 x 0.25 to obtain the capacity at
that rate. If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6 x 0.25 for that capacity.

THESE Boilers, designed for heating houses and
small buildings, present to the direct rays of
the fire a very large percentage of heating surface,
yet with a long fire travel to hold back the gases and
prevent their too-rapid escape to the smoke outlet.
Direct surface is necessary to raise steam quickly or
to heat water with economy of fuel. The "RICH-
ARDSON" Boilers have deep fire pots and high
combustion chambers. Grates can be furnished fcr
burning large or small sizes of coal, as may be desired.

Sectional Safety Steam and Water Boilers
25 Series — End Feed
Can be furnished with Double Feed Doors for Wood Fuel
T^HE principal consideration in a boiler is the ease
with which it can be operated — its ability to do
the work for long periods — and its economic features.
The proportion of grate area to do the work re-
quired to be done, large fire chamber and combustion
space, together with effective direct fire surface, with
large flues admitting of a low rate of combustion,
all tend to make the economic boiler. These are
fully realized in the "RICHARDSON" Boilers.

Method for establishing Ratings
When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a
residence for 70 degrees, the heat -condensing power of the radiation and
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 0|) lbs, of steam per sq. ft. per hour.
The capacity of the "RICHARDSON" Boilers, as indicated in the following
table, is figured on this basis.
If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such as
occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the fac-
tor representing the increased condensation should be used.
To convert line E to B. t. u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat
energy is expressed in terms of B. t. u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150
for water.
If A is burned in eight hours, divide E by 8x0.25 to obtain the capacity
at that rate. If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6x0.25 for that capacity.

pRACTICALLY all boiler manufacturers state in
their catalogues that one foot of fire surface is
equal in heating power to four feet of flue surface.
This is an emphatic endorsement of "RICHARD-
SON" Boilers. These boilers have over 75 per cent
direct fire surface on which the light of the fire
shines. To boil water, it is placed directly over the
fire, that is the reason "RICHARDSON" Boilers will
generate steam or raise water to a high temperature

"RICHARDSON"
Sectional Steam and Water Boilers
22 Series
4 and 5 Section Boilers have only one Feed Door.
OICHARDSON Boilers are so constructed as to
v present to the fire a large percentage of direct
heating surface. This surface being entirely backed
by water, in thin, shallow bodies, circulates rapidly
and quickly absorbs the heat units given off by
the fire. But the true value of a boiler depends not
alone on the amount of heating surface, but the
proper proportions between grate surface and heating
surface, yet with sufficient fire travel, to hold the
products of combustion long enough to thoroughly
extract all possible heat from the coal consumed.

"RICHARDSON"
Sectional Safety Steam and Water Boilers
30 Series
4 and 5 Section Boilers have only one Feed Door.
pHE value of heating surface depends upon it*
location. The heating surfaces in these boilers
are directly over and surrounding the fire where it feels
the first effect of the heat; hence their great power
and economy. On larger boilers of 6, 7 and 8 sec-
tions, double feed and ash-pit doors are provided
so that every part of the fire is accessible for atten-
tion, making it easy to put on coal and remove
the ashes.

Method for establishing Ratings
When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a
residence for 70 decrees, the heat-condensing power of the radiation and
Piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 (H) lbs of steam per sq ft. per hour.
The capacity of the Richardson Boilers as indicated in the following table
is figured on this basis. , ,. „ _ ,
If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.2o, such
as occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature or in
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the factor
reoresenting the increased condensation, should be used. . . ..
P To convert line E to B.t.u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat
energy is expressed in terms of B.t.u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150
for water E by 8 x 0.25 to obtain the capacity at
that rate If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6 x 0.25 for that capacity.

"RICHARDSON"
TANK HEATER
RATINGS
The capacities in gallons shown for the different
styles of hot water Tank Heaters indicate the size
of storage tank to which heater should be connected
for ordinary domestic supply systems; and heaters
have the capacity to impart from 25 to 40 degrees
of heat per hour to the water, which fulfills the
requirements of such systems.
Where a specific quantity of water is required to
be raised to a certain number of degrees per hour
for special purposes, the boiler capacity required
must be figured as follows:
Multiply the number of gallons to be heated per
hour by %\i lbs., which is the weight of one gallon
of water, and this result by the number of degrees
temperature water is to be raised; divide this result
by 8,000 (the heat units utilized from one pound of
fuel), and the result will be the number of pounds
of coal which must be burned per hour; this divided
by the rate of combustion at which the boiler is to
be run, will give the square feet of grate required.
Example: What size boiler will be required to heat
a swimming pool containing 2,000 gallons from 40
to 70 degrees in 4 hours? 2,000 gallons to be heated
in 4 hours is equal to 500 gallons per hour. 500
multiplied by 8^ equals'4,170 lbs. of water which,
multiplied by 30 (which is the number of degrees
the water is to be raised), equals 125,100 heat units
required to raise 500 gallons of water 30 degrees in
one hour. As 8,000 units is the value which can
be utilized from one pound of fuel, 125,100 divided
by 8,000 B. T. U. equals 16, which is the pounds of
coal to be burned per hour, and burning 6 pounds
of coal per square foot of grate would require a
heater with 2% square feet of grate surface.
Important
When water heaters are subject to an unusual
pressure or when the pressure is increased in the
night, or during fires, it is necessary to provide the
system with a water pressure-reducing valve.
